  1. Revell Ford GT Le Mans, 2016 GTE Pro Winner

    I ordered online from the UK. Hiroboy and another FB vendor.
  2. Revell Ford GT Le Mans, 2016 GTE Pro Winner

    Sorry Ismael, this is the 2017 car with the 2017 decals. I have a set of 2016 decals I picked up off of ebay (I'll add a pic of the decal set later on) I think they actually might have been test decals from Revell cause they're actually die cut and not just printed on a single sheet of decal paper. They're a bit thinner (less opaque) than the kit decals. I'm mixing the two sheets to make it as close to the 2016 car. I'm going to have to touch up a few spots where the decal isnt big enough but shouldnt be too noticeable at the end cause I'm going to weather it up a bit. I agree tho, no idea why Revell would do the 2017 car when the 2016 car won it's class and the box art kind of hints that the car won with the checkered flag. I also dont understand why Ford wouldnt insist on the 2016 car, but hey, maybe it's just me. They also got the roof wrong, the big pod on the roof, I removed it, is an IMSA transponder I believe, and is not correct for Le Mans. It should have been a part to add on if you wanted an IMSA car. Also there are no antenna's included, another small oversight. I still think Revell and other companies should be using people who build kits as part of their development team and can point out things like this.

    Getting it done. Lots of little decals still to go.
  4. Revell Ford GT Le Mans, 2016 GTE Pro Winner

    Yes, but there is very little difference in the sponsorship decals from year to year. You can likely mix and match to get the car you want. Fola from Slotfabrik is working on a set of decals for the IMSA cars (66 67) that should be ready next week sometime.

    Ismael, yes, its two pieces. The red part in the shot is one piece, the roof, the butress' and the rear fenders/rockers are one piece and the white/blue center is the other, makes painting much easier.

    Red White and Blue. Gravity Colors Ford Competition Blue/Red and Titanium White.
  7. Revell Ford GT Le Mans, 2016 GTE Pro Winner

    Wheels and tires almost done. Engine in progress as well. Paint is almost done then I can start on the decals. Watching the 24 hrs of Le Mans replay on Youtube while working away on this.

    Looking forward to following this Lou. I was going to use this kit originally but went with the Mustang instead. It's a really nice kit. Good luck.
  9. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    I ordered mine from the UK. They just hit the EU distributors at the end of last week. I'm guessing they're on the way to the US distributors now. I wouldnt be surprised to see them start to become available next week.

    I got a double post some how, so if a mod could delete one please. Thanks.

    You could or you could get one of the snap kits and then bash the two together. It's basically the same cad files for both, they just tweaked the GTLM car for the racing parts. The two piece body design is the same. I've got a couple, I'll check and see how some of the parts work together. Or wait for Jan/Feb and get Tamiya's road version.
  12. Got the first of what will be a few Ford GT's in today (three this time around and another on the way). I'm really impressed so far with this kit. It's much better than the C7R. There is room for improvement and Revell does things weird, but hey, it's here and it doesnt cost $200+, so for the price point I'll fix or correct what I dont like. I'm home all weekend and the weather is looking crappy so I'll be making some headway on this all weekend, for now a teaser.
